Product description


Once they learn the basics of the knitting, beginners are eager to tackle projects they can create on their own. This book contains 20 simple projects created specifically with the beginning knitter in mind. Featuring chunky yarns and simple designs, every project uses size 8 needles and above, so the work grows quickly. The authors provide tips on substituting yarns, altering pattern sizes and mastering various finishing techniques. Projects include a porch pillow, throws, rag rugs and a garden tote.
